WHY buy your Custom wedding bands at KARENNA MARAJ JEWELRY?
I believed I knew why people choose me. I thought it was because of my education from the Rhode Island School of Design and my dedication to quality, craft, and excellence. All of that does play a role, but mostly couples have told me they enjoy working with me because they never feel intimidated. I was surprised to hear this because it’s hard for me to put myself on the other side of the purchase since I live and breathe jewelry every day of my life. However, my wonderful customers insist that I have a unique approach, which makes them feel comfortable and in control.
Rather than dictate how a project should go, I like to lay out all the options–giving the benefits of each. From there, I trust my customers to make a decision that reflects their personal style. Selecting your wedding bands is a big decision. These rings will serve as a beautiful symbol of your love that you will see every day. My objective is to make sure the couple walks away delighted with the final product.
I am honored by every love story I am able to be part of. Each project is special to me. A friend of mine always loves to say that I bring as much enthusiasm to my $30 projects as I do to my $10,000 ones. That to me is the greatest compliment.

Should wedding bands match?
Matching wedding bands is a very personal preference. Traditionally wedding bands matched, but modern couples shouldn’t feel that way. There is no standard– the bands are an expression of your love for each other and it is truly up to you as a couple. In our experience couples don’t often match and when they do it is usually because one partner doesn’t have a strong opinion for a variety of different reason. If there is an engagement ring that usually has an impact on what matches best with it.
Who buys the man’s wedding band?
Traditionally it is the bride that purchases the wedding bands. In more inclusive terms one half of the couple will buy the rings for both partners. But in modern times who buys the man’s ring is up for grabs. You can each pay for your own ring or you can choose to buy your partners’ ring as a gift and have them do the same for you. Splitting the cost of the rings is very common and is sometimes grouped in with the total expense of the wedding. Talking it out and coming to a mutual agreement is the best action. It’s all about what works best for you and your significant other.
What does the wedding band symbolize?
The wedding ring symbolizes love, devotion, honor, commitment, and respect. The ring in its simplest form is an endless circle, which means forever, never ending love. The symbolism has stayed the same throughout time and over continents. It says, I love you and I want to be with you forever.
The look of the wedding ring has changed. As different civilizations have changed the look has evolved as well and become more and more beautiful–from the Egyptian’s woven vine to today’s diamond styles.
Which finger & what hand does the wedding ring go on?
The wedding ring goes on the 4th finger (ring finger) of the left hand in the US and many Western countries. But different countries have different traditions. Northern & Eastern Europe will wear wedding bands on the right hand. Some places also wear rings on both hands, or get engaged with one hand and married with the other.
How to wear a wedding ring?
The traditional way to wear your wedding ring is to have it first on your finger, on the inside or bottom. On the wedding day you take off the engagement ring and place it on your right hand. During the exchanging of vows your partner will place the wedding band on your left ring finger. Afterwards you can put your engagement ring back on your left hand, on top or outside of the wedding ring. This custom originated in Egypt, where people believed that the vein in that finger went directly to the heart.
Some women will keep the engagement ring on the right hand, fuse the 2 rings together or even stop wearing it. But the choice is yours to make your own custom wedding set.
How to clean wedding rings?
You can clean your wedding rings at home with liquid jewelry cleaner and a polishing cloth. But to get your rings truly polished bring them in to Karenna Maraj Jewelry Collection to have them professionally cleaned. We can buff off any light scratches and re-polish your rings to look like new. We also do refinishing if you had a satin/ brushed finish or whatever your original finishing was. Have other items that need to be polished? We are happy to clean and polish those as well.
Custom Wedding Ring TESTIMONIAL:
Looking for a hand-crafted wedding band for my fiance, I stumbled upon Karenna Maraj in Belmont. I emailed first to ask about the logistics and the owner, Karenna, was very responsive and helpful. Karenna walked through the process with me and explained all my options after I showed her a few photos. She was helpful and made great suggestions without being pushy. It took a very short time for her to order the raw materials and create the ring.
I was thrilled with the outcome. But, Karenna informed me that if my fiance wanted to make certain changes that would be possible. Of course Karenna was right and my fiance wanted to make a change – which Karenna did in very short order. She also indicated that should anything else come up she would happily address any issues we had.
It is remarkable to find such wonderful craftsmanship in tandem with great customer service! This was a wonderful experience and I am happy that smaller businesses still thrive in the area! -Jane Y. from Boston, MA
